Abstract

Two cases of dysphagia due to osteophytes at the level of the fifth and sixth cervical vertebrae are reported. The patients were two women aged 47 and 50 years. The diagnosis was confirmed by means of roentgenography, barium studies and, in one case, esophagoscopy. Both patients were successfully treated surgically. The importance of properly investigating cervical dysphagia is stressed. Doctors in many different fields of practice should be aware of this rare cause of dysphagia.
